Mark H. of Lauderhill, Fla. has been a huge fan of IGT's Megabucks® slot game since its launch in 1986. The new millionaire admits that he has always believed in his fortune. So, when the jackpot hit, the lucky winner was not surprised at all. He knew it was meant to be. As the executive producer of recently released "All American Christmas Carol," Mark is planning to invest the jackpot into his movie production company in Southern California. 

Nevada Megabucks® was launched more than 25 years ago as the world's first wide-area progressive slot system that has awarded over $1 billion in jackpots ever since.
